Metal detector VARICON+

Quick and reliable detection of all ferrous and non-ferrous metals in packaged and unpackaged piece goods.

The compact metal detection system offers you safe performance and highest detection sensitivity. With its robust stainless steel conveyor belt construction the VARICON+ inspects piece goods of up to 50 kg. A very short metal-free zone (MZ) ensures interference-resistant, reliable inline metal detection. To suit the area of installation the system is available with a modular belt (wet area) or a flat belt (dry area). The conveyor belts are available with variable belt widths. The motor controller is fitted either with a conveyor stop in case of metal detection or an application-specific rejection system.
For easy and thorough cleaning the VARICON+ series has a hygienic design. Quality which is reflected in BRC, IFS and HACCP certifications. The VARICON+ comes with IP65 protection. Higher IP ratings are optionally available.
